Cats & Huts
Those of you who have been reading this blog for a while will no doubt recognise these cats, which will eventually be a quilt for my mother - I am hand-piecing the sawtooth backs, and doing the rest by machine - there will be 20 cats in total - I have finished 8, with another one in process. Actually, they aren't quite finished, as they will also have tails, but those are appliqued on later, once the blocks are assembled (there's another neutral fabric to set between the groups of blocks) into a top. The project sort of got stuck in a basket at the bottom of my basket stack, but I have brought it back out - I'm try to get down to only having half a dozen or so projects on the go at one time (not counting finished tops waiting to be quilted, that is). I'll never be one of those people who works on one thing at a time, and that's it, but it did get a little out of control for a while, so I'm trying to get back on top of it a bit!
And in other news today - I have added some rooftops and railings to the beach huts - and Wil has reminded me that this challenge isn't due until May 1st, rather than April 1st, which is a bit of a relief. I still hope to work on it a bit in the upcoming week or two, rather than waiting until the end of April, but at least there's some breathing room.
And on the right, some bits from joggles.com - some collage sheets for an upcoming ATC swap organised by Lenna, some German scrap suns, and a few charms - mostly Egyptian ones, as I know that there's at least one upcoming arch for my arch swap which has an Egyptian theme.
